While driving on a busy city street one night a few years ago, I flinched as something from out of
the sky crashed down on my windshield, striking it with a tremendous thud. The thing startled me
and I heard the glass give under the object’s force—but it didn’t crack. I stopped, got out, and

had been struck and thrown up into the air by a passing vehicle. The rusty metal object landed
hard, leaving a few deep scratches on my windshield—the safety glass held up under the...
In Chapters 10 and 11 we discussedtechniques for output-feedback control of nonlinear systems both via non-adaptive and adaptive methods. In this chapter we apply these techniques to three illustrative examples. In the first example we consider the problem of controlling stall and surge in a jet engine compressor and we seek to find a controller which only employs the measurement of the differential pressure acrossthe compressor to reject stall and surge while regulating the pressure at a desired value.
